Some Guy Scooped The Baseball Media On The Biggest MLB Contract Ever

Details about the contract Giancarlo Stanton is signing with the Miami Marlins have started to leak out, and they're staggering: $325 million over 13 years, $50 million more than Alex Rodriguez's landmark 10-year, $275 million deal signed in 2007.

Blocking-The-Plate Rule Screws Marlins; Mike Redmond Starts Undressing

The Marlins got boned in a major way by the new and confusing rule that prohibits catchers blocking the plate. Although Zack Cozart was initially ruled out by home plate umpire Mike Winters, a lengthy umpire review eventually overturned the call and ruled him safe. Instead of a 1-0 Marlins lead heading into the… » 7/31/14 10:30pm 7/31/14 10:30pm
